Skateboarding Around

My family and I have been practicing our social distancing these days. We are taking the CoronaVirus very seriously around here, but we are still trying to have fun. After all, my boys are only going to be 9 & 11 this one year and just because the world is going to hell at the …

Minolta Maxxum 8000i

Some cameras come and go. In my case, a lot of cameras come and go! Some cameras however just hang around for years and years and never seem to find another owner. Like this beautiful old Minolta Maxxum 8000i. I’ve had this camera kicking around for ages! I haven’t used it in a super long …

Montana Signs

I love old signs like this! I think the “Sports Club” sign would be particularly awesome at night. Since I was only passing through this town (Shelby, MT) I didn’t have the opportunity to get a night shot of the sign. Even in the day light this sign still has a certain charm to it. …

House Goals

I am sure I have said this before, but Spokane, Washington has some really wonderful houses! I saw this one while walking around the Browns Addition neighbourhood one summer day with my wife. Such a beautiful neighbourhood with so many nice houses. If your ever in the area be sure and take a stroll around …

Boys 1st Day of School

Another school year has started for my boys! This is Cameron’s (black sweater) first year at Stanley Jones Elementary. Cam has been looking forward to joining his brother Joshua, who has started the 2nd grade today. I love taking the boys to school on their first day, but this day was extra special since it …

Neon

I love old neon signs on buildings. This particular one is quite wonderful. I love how this sign lights up the whole corner of the street. I shot this in Great Falls, Montana. The rest of the street was pretty dark and this little gem was a breath of fresh air in the dark night. …

Exploring Port Townsend

One night while I was in Port Townsend WA this summer, I went out to get some night shots. This was one of the first pictures I took because the window you look through in this picture is my hotel’s lobby. I was staying at the Palace Hotel and the street you’re looking down here is Tyler …

Trail, British Columbia

I was visiting some family in Castlegar, BC over Easter and while there I took a little trip to the neighbouring town of Trail to take some pictures. This is probably one of the better shots. It’s a nice little town with a river running through it, but it seems to get  bad rap because …

Old Country Bridge

I was out shooting a house in a small town called Cochrane yesterday. The town is about 20 minutes outside of the city and is a nice little community from what I saw. I had shot houses in this community before and I always noticed this old bridge from the top of a large hill as your …

The Nikon DF or Nikkormat

With the release of the rumoured retro looking Nikon DF full frame DSLR (16mp) comes some big decisions for people who love the look and feel of the old school film SLR’s of the 60’s & 70’s. For most people, I believe the main decision will be, “Do I feel like spending the $2,750.  price …

Heritage Park – Calgary

Today some family and I went on a little outing to Heritage Park here in Calgary. They got a bunch of old cars and gas pumps in one building and then in the actual park itself there is an old western style town with a train and a handful of old amusement park rides. I …

Canon 50mm 1.8 vs 1.2

This photo was shot with Canon 5D mark ii & Canon 24-85mm @85mm & f/4.5 I did a little comparison between 2 of my favourite lenses, the Canon 50mm 1.8 mark i & the 50L. With a price differnce of at least $1500, the case one can make to buy the 50L can only be …

A Country Landscape

Being a city guy, I rarely find my self in a situation to shoot a proper landscape photo. However, the other day I was out scouting some locations to shoot some photos of particular rural neighbourhood on the edge of the city limits. While on my scouting mission I noticed this old wagon sitting near …
